Miss Merx’s Mobile Nails

Last week I had my nails done AT HOME by Miss Merx. What a treat to have your nails done in the privacy of your own home! I don’t really like sitting in a salon with my feet in a washing-up bowl and quite honestly, I rarely have the time to spare to go anyway. Facials, hair colour, body treatments, massages – yes (though massage in my own home would also be ideal!), but nails? No. I have pretty OK hands and find that I can go a year or so without needing an overhaul, but my feet do tend to need a little extra care. I think that doing your own pedicure is almost impossible – feet are more awkward to reach, and you need to soak them properly and then work up a sweat with the old foot-file. It’s a LOT of hassle!

Nice, then, to have my tootsies seen to in the comfort of my own living room. I now have beautifully neat and shiny nails and my skin is smoother and softer – and I didn’t even have to set foot outside my front door. That’s something I could seriously see happening again. It’s easier to fit in an hour’s pedicure appointment when there’s no travel time involved!

Londoners, have a look at Miss Merx’s treatment menu – she covers most areas and also Hertfordshire.

Non-Londoners will have to make do with my pedicure hypnotherapy:  visualise your pedicure and it shall be done. Look into my eyes – in them, not around them – your feet are beautiful and smooth, your nails are….red? You don’t want red? Pink! You have pink nails, your cuticles are trimmed, you have a slightly achey arse from sitting in the same position for too long. That’ll be wtenty quid, please…

**twenty quid, rather.**

    Ok…that just proves it: London IS indeed the most civilized and wondrous place in the world!

    This sounds amazing. I love getting pedicures but hate the hassle of having to tiptoe around for the next hour petrified of smudging it! x

    I wish I was getting pedicures at home.

    Wow! Her prices are really reasonable considering she does all the travelling.

    I’ve only had one pedicure and I’ve never had a manicure – there’s no point when your hands spend most of their day in water. Saying that though, I’d love to try gel nails.

    Anyway, looking great, Ruth. Red is always a winner!

    Could you do a post on break up skincare? I’ve split with a boyfriend of 4 years and have not stopped crying for days. My skin is horribly puffy and angry at the constant saltwater drowning and tissue assault.

    Just an idea…would be so helpful!

    I have never had my nails done (always just do them myself), so I don’t even know what it’s like to have a proper manicure or pedicure, but this sounds amazing! Talk about pampering! Your tootsies look absolutely divine!

    @Allie – one day, you’ll wonder why you were into him at all, promise!
    Meanwhile, put some cucumber slices on those eyes, and then go shopping for a nice new you that doesn’t need a crap boyfriend xxx
